Anne van Kesteren


  1. The cardinal number equal to 18 + 1.
  2. The 19th in a set or sequence.

See also last year if things are unclear. Also, my weblog is older than two years now. When I moved to Oslo the fourth of July it was exactly two years old.


  1. Congrats! You old bastard!

  13. Congratz. You are so young and unspoilt. Or young at least ;) I do keep feeling too old for all this, with my 27 years.

  38. Well, happy birthday Anne! You're 18 days older than I am :)

  39. I'm yet another person who's going to just say "Happy Birthday!" and add no relevant content of any sort.

    I like reading your blog. You have a lot of good ideas about the HTMLish things that we all love. It makes me feel old that you're more than 8 years younger than me, though. ;)

  40. Sorry Isaac, but I thought wishing Anne a happy birthday was relevant.

    Anyhow, I can't help but wonder how he spent the day...

  41. Wow, I can't imagine knowing what you know about the web when I was 19. Here I thought you were some old crazy geezer ranting about the perils of XHTML, but I really appreciate your arguments on the issue - as well as anything else you post about. Peace, God bless, and Happy Birthday.
